CALL for Manuscripts–“China in the New Era” Book Series by Amsterdam University Press
(Submitted by Qiang Fang, December 2017)
“China in the New Era Series” was launched by to meet the rising influence of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as an economic, military, and political power in the world arena. Forty years after the Chinese Communist Party kicked off the reform, the PRC is now poised to surpass the United States as the world’s greatest economy. A more confident and powerful PRC coupled with increasingly rich primary sources have drawn tremendous interest from scholars around the world. The primary focus of this series will be the PRC in the new era with somewhat dual attention to earlier pertinent periods in the ROC and Late Qing. This series invites studies from a wide variety of disciplines and topics in politics, law, history, diplomacy, gender, and the like. Studies on modern history of greater China (e.g. Taiwan, Hong Kong) are also welcome.
